The 90th Academy Awards will air this weekend, and it looks like I’m going to be disappointed, ’cause my favorite films of 2017 probably won’t get much love. Movie site Fandango polled more than 7,000 moviegoers in the last few weeks about what film should win Best Picture at the Oscars, and their top three choices were…
The Shape of Water (19%)
Get Out (16%)
Now the reason these films are at the top of this poll is most likely because they were released across the country. More people had the chance to watch them, so of course they’ll get more of the vote with the general public.
That being said, The Shape of Water is still the favorite to win. It’s going to be between Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and that means I’m going to be disappointed.
My favorite films from 2017 were Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird, and Phantom Thread. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like those films will get much love. They’re all nominated for multiple awards, but they are not the frontrunners.
We’ll see what happens. The 2018 Oscars will air March 4, 2018.[mashshare]
